...Responsible Pet Care Mission Statement

Welcome to RPC

Responsible Pet Care of Oxford Hills provides a safe and comfortable environment for dogs and cats from Oxford County, Maine that have become lost or have been abandonded.

Responsible Pet Care is a no-kill, non-profit shelter. All of the cats and kittens in our care need permanent homes and are available for adoption. Many of the dogs will be reunited with their owners; but some will require new homes.

Whether you are looking for your lost pet or you want a companion, make Responsible Pet Care the first place you visit.

Picture of Cinnamon the dogCinnamon is a dog with many gifts. She arrived at the shelter as a stray. No one came to claim her. Shortly after her arrival she surprised the staff with five beautiful puppies. She was a good mom and all of her puppies thrived. This beautiful dog gives the gifts of love and devotion to everyone she meets. She is silly and playful. She can also be a couch potato when needed.


Picture of Summer the catSummer is warm and beautiful. And, just like a lazy day; sitting with her will make you forget your cares. Someone loved Summer very much; perhaps too much because she is very overweight. She is interested in interacting with people but she has a difficult time walking around because of her weight. She needs to be with someone that knows more food does not mean more love.
